Government Finance Statistics 2014 - 2017.


Note: The following release of Cook Islands Government Finance Statistics is based on preliminary unaudited accounts and are subject to change once the audited accounts become available. The tables are published on a fiscal year ending June 30.


Cook Islands GFS 2014 - 2017

Statement of operations:

The total revenue over the four year period was;

$149.6 million (2013/2014),

$172.1 million (2014/2015),

$174.4 million (2015/2016)

and $185.5 million in 2016/2017.

Taxation contributed more than fifty percent, to total revenue, over the four years.

In the 2013/2014 fiscal year, compensation of employees contributed the largest to expenses. However, the following three years' use of goods and services became the largest contributor to expenses.


Classification of Function of Government(COFOG):

Economic affairs proved to be the largest function of Government in the first three years due to the very large contribution in Economic Affairs(n.e.c). A split in infrastructure spending and associated cost at all government levels could not be done due to the unaudited data, hence the large sum in Economic Affairs(n.e.c)


The preliminary data shows a significant decrease in Economic Affairs in 2016/2017. This is expected to change once revisions are made.
